Today, when you can learn so much about filmmaking and photography online, is it even worth going to college? In this video, Kai Wong and Tim Pan discuss the question many of you have probably asked yourself. Should you invest your money in college, or just buy gear instead and start learning on your own? Let’s hear some pros and cons of both choices and see if you agree.
The Panasonic S1 and S1R full-frame mirrorless cameras have been discussed at great length online since their initial announcement last September at Photokina. After they launched in March, the discussion hotted up even more. People wanted to know what the photos were like, what the video was like, lens compatibility and so on.
As they’ve started to get into the hands of more people, we’ve seen a few reviews. But the one review many have been waiting for is Kai Wong’s, in the distinctive Top Gear-esque style (old Top Gear, not new Top Gear) that he’s made his own. Now, he’s finally released one for the Panasonic S1, and it looks like it doesn’t suck.
The number of photography-related tips we’ve heard so far is difficult to count. However, there are some tips that all of us have heard dozens, if not hundreds, of times. But despite being so common – are these tips really worth listening to? In this video, Kai Wong brings you some of the most popular photography tips you’ve probably heard many times. Should we keep them, modify them, or kill them completely?
Buying your very first DSLR is a thrilling event, but it’s not an easy task. The choice is huge and it may be overwhelming and confusing when you start looking at all those cameras. In this video, Kai Wong compares two options from Nikon you can get for under $400 along with lenses. One is new and the other is used, and Kai looks into the pros and cons of both.
Sony has recently announced a fancy compact superzoom camera, the Sony RX100 VI. It looks identical to the RX100 V, but it boasts a 24-200mm equivalent zoom range and comes with a couple of improvements. Kai Wong had a chance to play with the new vlogging camera from Sony, and he brings you his first impressions of this latest piece of gear.
The Sony A7III, the successor to the very popular and heavily discounted Sony A7II, was announced just a few days ago, but already people are getting very opinionated. A few are just going off the on-paper specs, while others have managed to actually get their hands on one and take it for a spin. So, let’s see what people think, and whether or not it’s the right camera for you.
We’ve seen Kai Wong goof around with funny cameras before. In one of his recent videos, he tested a digital toy camera you might wanna check out if you’re a Star Wars fan. He got this Millennium Falcon camera for Christmas, and he decided to test it out.
It’s a plastic “up to 5 MP” camera, but surprisingly, Kai took some pretty decent shots with it. If you ever needed a proof that gear doesn’t matter… Anyway, let’s take a closer look at this amazingly ridiculous little camera.
What is the best street photography lens? Is it 50mm, 35mm, or perhaps 28mm? Well, maybe it’s something in between. In this video, Kai Wong grabs a 40mm pancake lens and hits the streets on Pancake Day. He gives you a few reasons why 40mm can be the best for street photography, so let’s see if you agree.
So, you are a photo hobbyist and enjoy photography. But are you a true photography devotee? The 101% photo geek? In this hilarious video, Kai Wong teaches you how to “up your photo game to level 11” and be the ultimate photo geek. And it’s all spiced with his recognizable, sarcastic humor.
